Your live fish may not match the image shown due to natural variations in each species. Each companion animal is different in shape, color, and personality.
Also known as Hu-mu hu-mu nu-ku nu-ku a pu-a-'a, this fish is very closely related to the Hawaiian Statefish, Rhinecanthus rectangulus, which also happens to have the same Hawaiian name. The Hawaiian name roughly translates to "fish with a pig-nosed face" due to both its appearance as well as the grunting sounds this fish makes. This popular aquarium species is easily recognized by its oddly shaped body, with its tan/white body with bright blue and yellow lines. Humu Triggers enjoy rocky structures and crevices. As with other trigger fish, the dorsal spine and second spine will "trigger" to lock itself in a hole or crevice. Will pick on corals and other inverts.
